    I've been hearing the buzz that plenty of Phantom 3 pro owners are excited about the release of the Yuncee Typhoon H. Interesting drone with nice features. Only thing that I noticed was lacking was the flight range.... about the same as a Phantom Standard and 4K Standard.

    Here is the latest demo vid:

    A couple of observations:
    Video transmitter range up to 400m and control up to 1000m rather than the superb Lightbridge that P3 owners have become used to.
    It has a max speed of only 10 m/s and descends a little slower than the P3
    And it costs more than double what the P3 Advanced does
    It doesn't carry a bigger/better camera
    Object avoidance seems to get the crowd buzzing but how effective or useful is it really?

    I've heard otherwise with range of 1 mile. I'm excited about this one too. I like the retractable landing gear and that it's a hex as it provides redundancy. It's a good looking setup. I just wish the cost was less. I already have tons of devices so I don't need one built into the screen. Granted, this is very cheap for them to include but still unnecessary on my part.

    I agree. I think a built in screen has some advantages like ease of use and compatability but I think it adds a point of failure. I hate sending my stuff in to get fixed.

    Those are the figures from Yuneec: Yuneec Typhoon H Specifications + ST16 photo
    It's interesting that they show video transmission range being less than half that of the control signal.
    Hardly a selling point when you've experienced Lightbridge.

    Well, they have said multiple things the as I was instructed by their PR that it was a mile. I still think it's a nice bird and I still think the Inspire is overpriced for what it is. I feel that DJI needs to come out with something at a similar price point as this to compete.
